Stay here for the view, pool and beach
The Tivoli Carvoeiro is a decent hotel, but it's not up to Tivoli standards. That said, the views from the ocean-facing rooms, the pool and the beach below the cliffs will leave you breathless. Inside, there's a lot that needs to be addressed. The beds are honestly the worst beds I've ever slept on. An air mattress is more comfortable. It felt like I was sleeping on a box spring, so hard that I actually checked to make sure that I wasn't sleeping on a box spring! The poolside bar and restaurant closes at 5PM during season, which makes no sense whatsoever, and you can pay with credit card for beer and food but only cash is accepted for liquor, which also makes no sense whatsoever. (You can charge to your room, of course, but we had checked out and were waiting for our train in Tunes.) It was our first visit to the Algarve and was just for one night to get a taste.The pool is beautiful, the cliffs and rocks are beautiful, the beach at the bottom is beautiful, but I will research other area hotels next time to see if they can match the beauty with a better hotel.
